Product Information:

Tired of using a tool rest that's too short, too soft and designed by an engineer that has no idea what it's like to even use a lathe? If you'd like to spend more time turning instead of tuning, the Woodcraft lathe tool rest system is for you. The solid steel bowl rests provide a stable curve for turning and a flat top for vibration-free scraping. Use the large bowl rest for bowls up to approximately 14" diameter. Woodcraft tool rests are modular in design to save you money (buy two rests and one post), and permit you to use your rests on more than one lathe. Select the proper diameter post for your lathe and a tool rest in a length or shape to meet your needs. Note: tool rest lengths include threads. Posts screw into rests and can easily be removed and attached to a different accessory.

  • Interference-free hand movement

  • Save money with 2 rests and 1 post

    Comments about Bowl Rest, Large :

    I use the product to make bowls. It works good that job. I had to get a post made at a local machine shop, because they didn't make a 1 1/8" Dia. post. I have an old Powermatic 90 it needs a 1 1/8" Dia. post. I read that the post they do sell are not in tolerance and have a loose fit. This is not good for a tool rest. I guess it is a good buy for the money, but needs to be better constructed. A good idea for a tool rest, needs to be made better. If it was made like that in this country it would be strap.
